The authors reflect on the use of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) as treatment for acute graft versus host disease (GVHD). The authors discuss the study of J. Y. Weng and colleagues on medical outcomes of 19 patients who were treated with MSCs for refractory chronic GVHD. They mention that one study states that allotransplant recipients who received co-infusion of MSCs and allograft had high risks of leukemia relapse. They relate that advantage of prospective trial in the treatment.
